    Default Granby 4 Streets: Extraordinary Forever

    As Granby 4 Streets, the last four original streets still left with their original houses, woke up this morning nothing was true or happening that wasn’t true yesterday. Builders from Plus Dane and Liverpool Mutual Homes were arriving to begin their day’s work. To be joined any day now by the builders from the Granby 4 Streets Community Land Trust. All of this long campaigned, thought through and waited for.

    But today all somehow more true and somehow more celebratory. Because today we’re in The Guardian. Even me.


    “What’s happening in Granby is an important prototype for northern councils, who’ve been so badly hit by the cuts,” says Ronnie Hughes. “Two years ago, the whole area was nearly signed over to a private developer, but now the people who live here have finally got a formal stake in the place. It’s an extraordinary achievement – and now it’s extraordinary forever.”

    Ever since yesterday evening when the journalist involved, Oliver Wainwright, let us know that his long planned article would be published today and was already in the online edition, our phones and computers have been ringing and buzzing with messages of delighted congratulations. It’s like the 4 Streets Birthday. The 4 Streets birth day.
